All West Lothian schools have a dress code, which enables pupils to dress in a way which is appropriate to attendance at school. The dress code must not lead to direct or indirect discrimination on the grounds of race, religion, gender or disability. It is the expectation of the education authority that parents will be keen to support this code and written agreement may be sought.
In Ogilvie, children may wear grey or black skirts/trousers or plain joggers. The school has an attractive grey sweatshirt and a purple or white polo shirt with logo.
It is necessary that children have a change of footwear for health and safety reasons.
Children will also need to bring a tee shirt, shorts and gym shoes for P.E. It would be helpful if pupils could keep their P.E. kit in school, as there may be occasions when extra gym time will be available.
How to order school uniform
Uniform is available to order through the school office or online from Border Embroideries
Naming of uniform
Any item of clothing which a child is likely to take off in school should be clearly marked with your child's name. This is important with all clothing - one sweatshirt looks like another but it is vital on jackets, gym shoes and outdoor shoes. Parents should be aware that all items of clothing left behind in the school building, are left at the owner's risk, as the school cannot be responsible for them.
The Council will not be responsible for loss of or damage to pupils' clothing and personal belongings including mobile phones. Valuable items, including jewellery and unnecessarily expensive articles of clothing, should not be brought to school.
